Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion expects to hit 120 FPS on PC and 60 FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Producer Mariko Sato discussed the game’s performance in a new interview with Golden News (opens in a new tab), affirming the remake’s target performance benchmarks. Of course, there are some caveats here. For one thing, we don’t know what caliber of PC it would take to hit 120 FPS. Sato also didn’t share any specific details for the Switch, PS4, or Xbox One versions, although, unsurprisingly, he did say that the Switch will see “differences” in resolution and FPS. And these are still just performance. objectives – although they are quite encouraging goals.
PS5 and Xbox Series X games have largely normalized 60 FPS outside of the fanciest graphics modes, and PC gamers are no strangers to triple-digit frames. However, the initial Final Fantasy 7 Remake didn’t set a stellar standard when it came to performance, so Crisis Core’s goals were a question mark.
On PC in particular, Final Fantasy 7 Remake experienced frequent stutters even at 60 FPS or less on powerful machines, and its basic graphics settings – and we’re talking a single bleached bone on an empty white plate – didn’t really allow any wiggle room. . We still don’t know what kind of adjustment Crisis Core Reunion will allow, and that goes double for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirthbut the fact that Square Enix is shooting well over 60 FPS on PC at least bodes well.
“Our main goal with this title is that we wanted a really wide range of gamers to be able to play on whatever platform they wanted,” producer Yoshinori Kitase told Golden News. “So we look forward to seeing which platform players choose because the gaming experience will be solid and the same great experience on all platforms.”
In a separate interview, the stars of the Crisis Core remake emphasized that Reunion is a “faithful retelling” of the original story.
